Why you need a copper bottle?
In Ayurveda, copper is said to balance the mind and body. The ancient practice recommends drinking water kept overnight in a copper vessel (tamra jal – copper water), first thing in the morning.
Verified by modern science, we now know that copper is an essential dietary supplement that:
The World Health Organization recommends a daily intake of 2.1 mg/day for adults.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Nutrition Center estimates, however, that more than half of the population does not consume the minimum daily requirement for copper.
Your taamba copper bottle is a safe, natural way of incorporating copper in your diet.
With drinking water stored in the bottle overnight, you will receive approximately 0.2mg/L of copper, with the rest of your daily intake coming from your food and water source.
Our bottles are not lacquered on the outside like most other bottles. This was a conscious decision so that our customers can reap the most benefits of copper – an antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-fungal metal. Hospitals are using copper on frequently touched surfaces such as fittings, doorknobs and hand railings to stop the spread of superbugs and infections – so why shouldn’t we?
Without the lacquer coating, your copper bottle is a germ fighting machine that kills bacteria on contact!
Yes, new research published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that copper kills COVID-19 (SARS-COV-2) virus within 4 hours as opposed to cardboard surfaces where the virus can survive up to 24 hours and plastic & stainless steel surfaces where the virus can survive up to 72 hours.
We have written a blog post detailing research on copper's effectiveness on COVID-19 and reasons why copper is a superior metal to use for re-usable bottles compared to plastic and stainless steel bottles.

Apart from the germ fighting capabilities, this bottle is an excellent way to reduce plastic waste in your life. Use this re-usable bottle daily and when you no longer need it, you can deposit it for recycling at most municipal recycling centers that recycle metals.
